Daktronics has worked with Mexican partner Pantallas Publitronics to provide two LED displays for Estadio BBVA Bancomer, home of C.F. Monterrey in Mexico. The displays were installed this summer in time for the eighth edition of the S.L Benfica’s Eusébio Cup with C.F Monterrey’s first match on 2 August.
“We are excited to work with Daktronics to bring a better overall experience to our fans and sponsors for interaction, information and statistics at every event held at Estadio BBVA Bancomer,” said vice president of C.F. Monterrey Tonatiuh Mejía. “We worked with world leaders in every aspect of creating this facility which will be a tourist icon for the city, designed with iconic materials from our states and equipped with the highest audio and video international standards.”
The new displays each measure 8.41m high by 19.02m wide and feature 13HD pixel layouts to provide clear imagery with wide angle visibility to more than 50,000 seats in the newly constructed stadium. The displays feature variable content zoning which allows each display to show one large image or to be divided into multiple different zones to provide any combination of live video, instant replays, scoring information, animations and sponsorship messages.
“Choosing the best in the world at each specialty for the construction of this stadium, including Daktronics for LED video displays, brought professional people who offer professional services and premium, quality products,” added Mejía. “Working with Daktronics has been a great experience for us that benefits our fan’s experience.”
“Daktronics is thrilled for the opportunity to provide Los Rayados with these video displays at their new stadium in Monterrey and for the continual guidance from our long-time representatives in Mexico, Pantallas Publitronics, without whom the project would not have been possible,” said Erin Harvey, Daktronics international sales representative.
“The views of the mountains that form the backdrop of the stadium give it a commanding feeling. With the mountains, there’s no doubt that you’re in Monterrey; it’s very much the home of Los Rayados. The Daktronics displays share part of that view, so it is important to put our best foot forward.”
